Beckinsale will fight along side her brutal ally David, played by ‘Insurgent’ actor Theo James.

Underworld 1

For those of you who are not familiar with the awesomeness that is ‘Underworld’, let me fill you in. For centuries, a feud between vampires and lycans (werewolves) has been raging.In ‘Underworld’ (2003) Selene, a vampire and complete badass, has fallen in love with Michael (Scott Speedman), a lycan hybrid. In the next chapter, ‘Underworld: Evolution’ (2006), Selene and Michael are on a mission to investigate the history between vampires and lycans, in hopes of discovering the truth behind the battles. 2009’s ‘Underworld: Rise of the Lycans’ delves into the past and reveals the origin of the hatred between the clans. In ‘Underworld: Awakening’ (2012) humans have discovered the existence of vampires and lycans, now human forces are out to destroy them both.

Ann Foerster (The Day After Tomorrow) will be directing the high-octane sequel. ‘The Last Witch Hunter’ writer Cory Goodman is penning the new script. ‘Next Generation’ will pick up where ‘Awakening’ left off and focus on a new generation of vampires and lycans, who are continuing the centuries old feud.  Filming begins in October, which will put the release some time in 2016.
